1958 Cadillac Runs & Drives After 15 Years & Commentary

I'm proud to say I have resurrected this car. It sat in a car port for 15 years but now she "runs like a sewing machine." New Exhaust pipes, carb from another car (63 Pontiac), rebuilt wheel cylinders for the brakes, new brake hoses, front end stabilizer pins and a few other things. Now she rides like a, well... Like a Cadillac!.. Next will be cleaning the fuel tank and fixing the fuel gauge...

Resurrecting a Classic Chevy
This is my 1968 Chevy Caprice. It was the very first car I ever worked on as a Student of Auto Body way back 20 years ago. Since then the car has lapsed into obscurity after the transmission went all kerflooey and sat under a cedar tree for 16 years. The needles destroyed the paint, the vinyl top was not replaced when the car was originally fixed, and the interior was ruined when the top gave way. The car had about $3,000 put into the engine (a 327 ci 275 hp engine that is original to the car) and the car overall has about 87,000 original miles. As I stated, the car has sat for the last 16 years and we dragged it to its current location, put a battery in it, and after some tinkering, it started right up. It has a whole tank of $.99 gas in it and it runs smoothly. The peck you hear in the video is an Exhaust leak. If you have any questions, drop me an e-mail.

1958 Cadillac Runs After 15 Years!
I bought this Cadillac and it hadn't run in 15 years. It was missing the carburetor and the previous owner I guess thought that was the problem. Well, the carb was lost by the mechanic over the years. I borrowed one from a 1963 Pontiac parts car I have. Turns out the fuel pump was bad but I got it running in 20 second spurts with a gravity feed. I used a funnel, a hose and filled it with gasoline. It worked until the gas ran out but it was a good way to test a few things. At least I spark, compression and oil pressure and that all the valves were opening and closing.

134296 / 1970 Cadillac DeVille
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/qghjtdo Mixing one of the biggest and smoothest V8s GM ever produced with mirror-like paint and a spacious, comfortable interior, this classy DeVille puts a new twist on 'Standard of The World'. And if you've always dreamed of owning a big American cruiser that's high on style and loaded with comfort, it's just the opportunity you've been waiting for! Not completely devoid of character, like so many traditional, frame-off restorations, this road-ready drop-top is an exhilarating combination of factory-correct blitz and tasteful glam. Appearing both solemn and official, its Jet Black paint reflects an excellent shine that literally glows when crouching under the sun. And that modern two-stage covers what appears to be clean, mostly original sheetmetal which displays no sign of botched repairs or historic damage. Cadillac, once the world's leading proprietor of fine, 16-cylinder motor coaches, knows a thing or two about performance. For example, this convertible's correct, 472 cubic inch monster block, which is one of the largest V8s ever produced, turns stout 10 to 1 compression into a smooth 375 horsepower. And while GM Powertrain did provide engines that generated more power, this mill was designed to idle silently, create instantaneous thrust and emit merely a whisper from its tailpipe. Judging by the appearance of the car's satin black bay, it's been on a regular maintenance schedule, benefitting from periodic, full-scale detailing. Many of the motor's original ancillary items have been replaced by flashier hardware including: a chrome, single-snorkel air cleaner, chrome valve covers, a polished radiator overflow and an HEI distributor that's complete with 8mm Hi Temp wires. And thanks to two Optima gel cell batteries, the car fires so smoothly you may not even notice it's running. Behind that big engine, an original turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed spins a traditional GM 12-bolt that's complete with smooth 2.98 gears. Speaking of smooth, the car's long and low suspension, which is augmented with Air Ride Technologies air bags, glides over almost any imperfection with virtually no drama. And all that proven hardware rolls on slick Centerline Smoothies which spin 245/40R20 Firestone Firehawks around detailed Cadillac crests. If you're a fan of big time comfort, you'll be absolutely thrilled by this DeVille's custom black interior! The '63 Cadillac front and chopped rear seats are firm, supple and display virtually no signs of aging. In front of those half power, half manual seats, a modernist, crack-free dash hangs a contoured instrument panel between a billet mirror, a modern Pioneer CD player, controls for the car's Air Ride Technologies suspension and chrome-trimmed foot pedals. In front of the driver, a custom '59 Cadillac steering wheel spins a chrome horn ring around a tilting column and simple chrome gear selector. And behind the passengers, a Dynamat-lined trunk seals a giant subwoofer behind a Pioneer CD changer, two JL Audio amps, a small bass tube, a fifth Centerline/Firestone combo and a small, South County Customs jack. This DeVille is an extremely high-quality cruiser with no question marks attached. Don't miss your opportunity to own one of the coolest Caddys on the planet!

1958 Pontiac Star Chief Super Deluxe Series 58-28 Catalina Hardtop Sedan - SOLD!
Remember when.......? Many of us remember this great classic 1958 Pontiac Star Chief Series 58-28 Catalina hardtop sedan even though there were less than 22 thousand ever made. It's all there, the 369 V-8 just puuuuurrrrrrrrs, it has an automatic transmission, power brakes, a working radio, a working heater—AND it even has cruise control. Overall miles are 109K, and it's a 2nd owner car. We believe the original paint colors were Calypso Green and Patina Ivory. As mentioned in the video, it does have some rust issues including floor boards and will need that taken care. But you could quickly do that, paint the hood and trunk to its original color, maybe replace the carpet and give it a lube, oil and filter. This survivor is an eye catcher and even though it needs restored, the interior is in good shape over all as is the body and most of the paint. You won't get in trouble with the spouse when you buy this one because you can drive it while you restore it and you'll be cruisin' into summer.





1958 Cadillac Coupe Deville
This is an outstanding Classic Coupe De Ville that has been a rust free California car since new. The previous owner has had the car since 1959 and options include, power windows, power steering, updated power disc brakes, updated factory A/C, wire wheels, original radio with additional modern AM/FM stereo and even a power seat. A stunning example! Price: $36,900.00 Body: Coupe Color: Alpine White Stock ID: 120208 Vehicle ID (VIN): 58J114320
